What did I learn today?
How did we do that?
What is the Circle of Courage
“First of all, we needed to acknowledge the Land where we gather every day here at Westgate School, Calgary, AB.
Then, everyday we gather as s group in a circle, we sit on the carpet where everybody can see each other and we pass around a rock from the Bow River.
One of the rules of our Circle of Courage is... if you have the rock you have the right to talk!
So, we know that we have to be good listeners when our peers are talking.
We are developing a culture of respect during our discussions and sharing time. We share anything we feel it is important to share about what happened to us during that day, good or bad.” (Grade 2 students.)
My Personal View of this experience:
Sra. Claudia Sasse (@ClaudiaGSasse) is passionate about Language and Culture. She loves teaching and learning from her kiddos! Her last name is Sasse (pronounced Sass, the “e” is silent), but some of call students call her Sra. “Sassy”… I believe that they are right!!! LOL
